Donate

There are lots of ways you can help to support my journey.

Send a gift

Any and all donations, no matter how small or large, are gratefully accepted! And when you donate £50 you become a patron (see below).

Here’s an idea of how your gift may be spent (weekly): Rent - £255;  Food - £35; Travel - £24; Course Materials - £15; Bills & Emergencies - £20.  I'm using PayPal.Me for online donations because unlike many crowdfunding or sponsorship websites it doesn't take a percentage of donations. The only additional charge is if you pay with a credit card.  

However if you don't have - or want - a PayPal account, please contact me and I'm happy to arrange for a cheque, bank transfer or cash donation.

Become a patron

Everyone who gives £50 or more becomes a patron and receives:
  • An invitation to a special gala performance of a one-man show, which I promise to perform within the first year following my graduation in September 2017. 
  • Entry into a prize draw to win two tickets for each of my public performances whilst training. 
  • At least 4 newsletters over the year with updates about my progress during training. 
  • Pre-publicity materials for all the shows I perform while training. 
  • Recognition on the patron page of this website (unless you prefer to remain anonymous). 
  • A certificate of patronage.
